Fragile Matter

Tasdance & Jukstapoz

 

Created by internationally acclaimed Greek dance company Jukstapoz and inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s epic film The Great Dictator, Fragile Matter uses dance, theatre, storytelling and puppetry to create a unique dance-theatre experience.

This entertaining, high energy performance has been around the world, finding a political and social relevance wherever it goes. Audiences will be stirred by the poignant significance to current political and social events, and moved by the humanness brought to the characters.

Using the body as metaphor for war and unity, eight embattled dancers rally, resist and break out in a work that is both fiercely physical and intimate, with a sound score to match.

 

Choreography: Christine Gouzelis & Paul Blackman
Lighting Design: Luca Sirviö adapted by Darren Willmott
Puppet Design: Dimitris Nassiakos
Artistic Director: Felicity Bott
Rehearsal Director: Carol Wellman Kelly
Dancers: Gabriel Comerford, Robert Flehr, Bec Jones, Olivia McPherson, Jack Riley, Isabella Stone, Nikki Tarling and Robert Tinning
